Quick Hello

The world is quite mad right now, isn’t it? People are staying away from each other. Cooped up in our houses. Scared. Anxious. Some of us have lost work, or have been working from home. Too many people are ill and WAY too many have died. It’s all a surreal nightmare that we won’t wake up from for a while.


I am currently working at the house. My office is the library and my desk is the Ikea table we use for game nights. There’s a blanket next to my laptop so the cats have somewhere to plop down and not bother me. And lick their butts, apparently.

I’m trying not to freak out about everything, but it’s not an easy task. Focusing on the positive parts of it helps. For instance, no social anxiety! Pants are optional! Doing chores at lunch! So many movies and shows to watch! Factiming friends! Cat snuggles up the wazoo!

How are you doing? Let me know in the comments. Hang in there. Be safe. Reach out if you need to.

β€œYes, it’s one of the basic truths of the universe,…Things don’t disappear. They just change, and change and change again.” – Jim Henson

  1. Hi Meri,
    I’m in the fortunate situation of being a public servant working in the central coordination area in our government’s response to COVID-19. As a medical advisor, I’m in the thick of things so I get a bird’s eye view. That said, the hours are long. I get up at 0400 to check e-mails and arrive at work at 0600. I’m usually leaving work at about 1900 and the logging in from home to finish my inbox and answering calls until about 2200. No days off since mid-January. Some of our advisory groups have met every day including weekends since then. I’m tired, but very grateful I have a fulltime job. In my immediate family, I’m the last one with a fulltime job.
